Lepidoptera | Butterflies: Real And Imagined

On view September 4-30, 2021

Similar to my past body of work of hummingbirds, this exhibition of butterflies deals with scale and proportion. The idea of trying to enlarge something that is usually only seen as very small, is quite challenging. Butterflies, along with hummingbirds, have a certain jewel-like quality to them along with a sense of fragility and ephemeralness.

I have presented some of them as if they are in a scientific display, and others as if they might be aloft. Some of the butterflies are basically how they really appear and others are imagined. They have a myriad of designs and their wings of microscopic scales provide for a collage of color. – Matt Bult, July 2021

“To A Butterfly”

I’ve watched you now a full half-hour;
Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little Butterfly! indeed
I know not if you sleep or fleed.
How motionless! – not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!

– William Wordsworth

“Little Wing”

Well, she’s walkin’ through the clouds
With a circus mind that’s running wild.
Butterflies and zebras and moonbeams and fairytales.
That’s all she ever thinks about.
Riding with the wind.

– Jimi Hendrix
